The math classroom today looks different from what many of us remember. One of the most important goals is that students learn how to think critically about mathematical concepts. Research reveals that in addition to math content, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity are skills we should develop in our students. This translates to the math classroom through real-world problems, exchange of ideas, numerical flexibility, development of conceptual knowledge and procedural fluency. This can be confusing for those of us that were not taught math in this manner. This parent math blog will provide parents with important information regarding our math curriculum, and hopefully answer some questions and lessen any confusion.
We are asking all parents to sign up to receive periodic updates as we post to our math blog. On the top left, use your email address to sign up for the blog.
This is one of many steps we are taking to keep our parents involved and informed on curriculum and instruction at Paine Intermediate School.
